Debtor, Steward, Ambassador

September 29, 2010

“The Christian preacher is a debtor because through Christ he has himself been delivered from future judgment. He is a steward, because the message of reconciliation has been committed to him. He is to employ the resources provided by his Lord, not to diminish, add to, or transform them. He is also an ambassador, whose task is always to represent his Master and faithfully to deliver his message.” (Sinclair Ferguson, What Then Shall We Preach On Hell?, 9 Marks Journal)
